The Perfect Nanny: Maya Erskine and Nicole Kidman will lead HBO’s new limited series, The Perfect Nanny

HBO stars Nicole Kidman and Maya Erskine in The Perfect Nanny, a limited series from the creator of PEN15. In 2023,

HBO will be on the ground running. The network announced a second season of The Last of Us. It also brought Nicole Kidman back to adapt Leila Slimani’s The Perfect Nanny. The project hails originally from Pen15 10co-creator, and co-lead Maya Erskine who HBO sought in a competitive environment. The Perfect Nanny is Erskine’s creation and writing. It is based on Slimani’s novel. Legendary Television is also participating in the action.

Here is the official synopsis of Slimani’s novel via Amazon.

Myriam, a lawyer, decides to return to work after having children and search for the perfect Nanny to care for their child and son. They never imagined that Louise would become their Nanny. She is a quiet, polite and devoted woman who sings to the kids, cleans the family’s Paris apartment, and hosts enviable child-friendly parties. The idyllic scene is shattered when the Nanny and the couple become more dependent on each other. Jealousy, resentment and suspicions build up, as well as jealousy and resentment. The Perfect Nanny, which builds tension with each sentence, is an intense, compulsive exploration of power and class via Why Not Productions with Philippe Godeau for Pan-Europeenne. Erskine is executive producing with Pascal Caucheteux via Why Not Productions, with Philippe Godeau for Pan-Europeenne.

In a dark twist,

The Perfect Nanny took inspiration from the 2012 Krim children murder, initially published by Gallimard in France in 2016. The story explores disturbing instances of jealousy, betrayal, and is a cautionary tale about dependence, blind trust, murder, and suicide. The book received France’s highest literary honor, the Prix Goncourt.Child care comes with myriad challenges. I can’t imagine the terror parents must feel when they have to leave their children in someone else’s hands.

The Perfect Nannyis a riveting drama that explores fear of making bad judgments and watching your family crumble. It’s every parent’s worst nightmare. Kidman and Erskine will make sure you feel every awkward and frightening moment.
